Description Till Maas 2009-08-05 11:33:30 UTC
Description of problem:
If i use %defattr(755,root,root-) and later %attr(644,-,-) foofile, the owner and group of foofile are not set to root.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm-4.7.0-2.fc11
rpm-4.6.1-1.fc10

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. wget http://till.fedorapeople.org/tmp/attrtest.spec
2. rpmbuild -bb attrtest.spec
3. rpm -qp --qf "[%-8{fileusername} %-8{filegroupname} %{filenames}\n]" ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/noarch/attrtest-0-1.fc11.noarch.rpm | grep $USER
  
Actual results:
till     till     /attr

Expected results:
grep should not match / all contents should belong to root:root

Comment 1 Till Maas 2009-08-05 11:37:57 UTC
I expected the beheaviour because of this documentation:

http://www.rpm.org/max-rpm-snapshot/s1-rpm-specref-files-list-directives.html
| Attributes that do not need to be set by %attr may be replaced with a dash
[...]
|  The %defattr sets default %attr for RPM.

Comment 2 R P Herrold 2009-08-05 18:48:54 UTC
I would suggest there is a comma missing before the last dash in the %defattr

Thanks, but the spec does not have the typo.

Fixed upstream.
